  2. I'm a big admirer of Giuliana also. I was unaware she had written a book. I hope this silly controversy about what she said on Fashion Police doesnt affect sales or change her publication date.

    1. Hope not. I really admire her and I think the whole Fashion Police thing was taken way over the top! I guess maybe the woman that took umbrage is getting good publicity so its a bonus for her.

  6. I hope to be reading Baltimore Blues this week...I have read some other books in the series, all out of order, of course.

    I also loved Looking for Me....glad you enjoyed it, too. And thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Looking for Me was very special, I don't know how you read out of order, I avoid it whenever possible!

  7. Wow you got a LOT of books read in February! Congrats and good luck in March! I'm very intrigued by Silver Thaw, but I'm hesitant to pick up a copy. Have a good week!

    1. Thanks Sarah. Silver Thaw - it depends on what you read really, wouldn't suit everyone, I like a straight down romance like Catherine Anderson writes. Comfort read!

  8. Wow, you had a great month!!

    Barbara Delinsky...I haven't read a book of hers in years, and she used to be a favorite of mine. I may have to revisit some of her stuff.

    I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    1. I know me either, and I have one on my TBR pile too. I saw this one above on NetGalley and thought why not!

  9. Excellent reading month for you. I am looking forward to The Girls of Mischief Bay and Trust No One.

    1. Both great Nise. Susan Mallery is on to it with this one. So love her women's fiction ones. Wish she wrote more in that line.

  10. Brilliant month for you Kathryn! I picked up The Martian using audible credits and I must see if I can get One Tiny Lie, before I forget again. I need to come back to your post to add to my already groaning TBR pile ... Insecure, Blue Prints. Hope March is just as good :)

    1. You might get to The Martian before me. Have just spent the last half hour checking out my library audio online books since reading your post! Sent me off on a tangent! Put in a list those I might borrow, but they only give 14 days and not sure I can get a book listened to in that time. Shall see. I know so many good books. As you know I love Ainslie Paton's books, found out that's not her actual name but anyway her writing name. Raising my glass to March!
